Maybe someone has an answer to this question: their max DD is calculated in regards to the initial balance or from any peak balance you may have?

From the initial balance. That's why it is a good strategy to increase size once you have a profit cushion, both generally and daily.

Now it is said to be the same for the Live traders, but I disagree with it. Let's say you are trading Live with the 100K account and you made 8K. Then you start to lose. They say you are allowed to lose all the profit back and the max DD, but I say you should be stopped long before that. If you were up 8K and you lose 4K back, I would stop you and evaluate why the losses happened, but that is just me...
